Chicken Corn Porridge

This is a twist for the usual Indonesian chicken porridge I always make or other porridge dishes I always love to eat and easily found in Singapore



One dish very much loved by the whole family :)
I used my pressure cooker for convenience
The recipe below used normal pot

What you need:

3 cloves of garlic, minced
250g chicken breast, small diced
2 cans of corn kernels (or corn kernels from 4 large corns)
1 can button mushroom, cut
2 cups of rice
16 cups of water
sesame oil, oyster sauce, salt, a little sugar
  1. Put in well rinsed rice and water in a large pot, bring to boil on low fire
  2. Heat frying pan with sesame oil, sautee garlic til fragrant, add in chicken and stir til chicken cooked and change color
  3. Pour chicken mixture into the pot, stir to combine with the rice
  4. Add in corn kernels, stir well, followed by mushrooms, stir well
  5. Add in oyster sauce, salt, sugar and more sesame oil  til the desired taste achieved while stirring continuously til the mixture becomes thick
  6. If you find it's too thick, you may add more water (the measurement here is the best for my liking)
Always stir to avoid the bottom part being burnt

My family, including me, love to eat this porridge with bottled chilli sauce and prawn crackers. Sounds weird, but it's really delicious :)


  1. Hi Alice, your porridge look delicious. I love porridge too but haven't not try with bottled chilli sauce. Usually I'll take with bird eyes chillies.

    Have a great week ahead.

    1. hi Amelia, thks :)
      actually this is the only porridge I eat with bottled chilli sauce LOL

  2. The porridge looks good and healthy . I like corns but too bad my hb doesn't eat corns.

    1. hi Angel, thks :)
      oh too bad that your hubby doesnt eat corns
      my family loves corns, even my boy whom dislikes vegetables eats corns
      perhaps u can cook a little portion just for you LOL

  4. This sounds exactly like the dish that my mom would make for me when I was sick (except that she added a lot of ginger in there as well) Some good memories.. (of the porridge. Not of being sick) It looks great!

    1. hi Cathleen,
      haha you're so cute :)
      hmmm, adding ginger sounds like a good idea
      i shall consider that when i make this again
      thks for dropping by :)
